Very good. Hadn't thunked of that.

Of course the question is...why would someone bother to sprinkle this
throughout their code. 

For example:

function O1en($l1eh          ) {
	$this->O1dh= (int) $l1eh["i\144"];
	$this->l1dt= (int) $l1eh["\143\151d"];
	$this->l1ey=    (double) $l1eh["\167e\151g\150t"];

That's the octal way of writing these characters. See
